German tuner JE Design unveils its own tuning program for the new VW Scirocco. Engine tuning takes the 2.0 liter TFSI from 200 hp to 244 hp. JE Design also offers a full body kit and a variety of wheel sets as part of its program.
More Scirocco tuning but we just have to welcome it, don't we?
This time it's Leingarten, Germany-based tuner JE Design.
First, what's coming under the hood, which is what we really want to know from German tuners. The performance kit (for 1,249 €) takes the 2.0 liter TFSI's 200 hp and boosts it to 244. Torque goes from 280 to 350 Nm.
The resulting performance numbers seem worth the modest 1,250 euro price tag. 0 to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 242 km/h.
And, of course, proper tuning requires a new and improved set of wheels. JE Design can provide you with 8x19" rims with 235/35 R19 tires in "shadow silver" for 2,810 €. There is also the choice of the "matt black / silver rim bead" for 2,930 €, or the "white pearl / polished front" for the same price.
JE Design also offers lowering springs for 219 € which bring the Scirocco down about 3 cm.
The body kit packages includes side skirts, air intakes and front and rear spoilers with a series of variations all for under 1,600 euro.
A stainless-steel muffler and double-oval-piped, mid-positioned exhaust is also available for 899 euros.
We always appreciate tuners who provide prices that give consumers a realistic view of what they'll be offered and also know if what is on offer is realistic for them.
